Earthy components are those soil series or higher level taxa components that can support crop growth (Dobos et al., 2012). Major components are those soil components where the majorcompflag = 'Yes' (SSURGO component table). Useful metadata information. NULL values are presented where data are incomplete or not 54 Root Zone Depth (cm) earthy major components rootznemc root_zone_cc_de pth_earthy_mc Root zone depth is the depth within the soil profile that commodity crop (cc) roots can effectively extract water and nutrients for growth. Root zone depth influences soil productivity significantly. Soil component horizon criteria for root limiting depth include: presence of hard bedrock, soft bedrock, a fragipan, a duripan, sulfuric material, a dense layer, a layer having a ph of less than 3.5, or a layer having an electrical conductivity of more than 12 within the component soil profile. If no root restricting zone is identified, a depth of 150 cm is used to approximate the root zone depth (Dobos et al., 2012). Root zone depth is computed for all map unit major earthy components (weighted average). Earthy components are those soil series or higher level taxa components that can support crop growth (Dobos et al., 2012). Major components are those soil components where the majorcompflag = 'Yes' (SSURGO component table). NULL values are presented where data are incomplete or not

9 55 Root Zone Available Water Storage (mm) earthy major components rootznaws root_zone_cc_aw s_earthy_mc Root zone (commodity crop) available water storage estimate (RZAWS), expressed in mm, is the volume of plant available water that the soil can store within the root zone based on all map unit earthy major components (weighted average). Earthy components are those soil series or higher level taxa components that can support crop growth (Dobos et al., 2012). Major components are those soil components where the majorcompflag = 'Yes' (SSURGO component table). NULL values are presented where data are incomplete or not 56 Droughty Soil Landscapes earthy major components droughty drought_vulnerab le_soil_landscape s Drought vulnerable soil landscapes comprise those map units that have available water storage within the root zone for commodity crops that is less than or equal to 6 inches (152 mm) expressed as "1" for a drought vulnerable soil landscape map unit or "0" for a non droughty soil landscape map unit or NULL for miscellaneous areas (includes water bodies). It is computed as a weighted average for major earthy components. Earthy components are those soil series or higher level taxa components that can support crop growth (Dobos et al., 2012). Major components are those soil components where the majorcompflag = 'Yes' (SSURGO component table). NULL values are presented where data are incomplete or not 57 Potential Wetland Soil Landscapes pwsl1pomu pwsl1_percent_of _mapunit "Potential Wetland Soil Landscapes" (PWSL) is expressed as the percentage of the map unit that meets the PWSL criteria. The hydric rating (soil component variable hydricrating ) is an indicator of wet soils. For version 1 (pwsl1), those soil components that meet the following criteria are tagged as PWSL and their comppct_r values are summed for each map unit. Soil components with hydricrating = 'YES' are considered PWSL. Soil components with hydricrating = NO are not PWSL. Soil components with hydricrating = 'UNRANKED' are tested using other attributes, and will be considered PWSL if any of the following conditions are met: drainagecl = 'Poorly drained' or 'Very poorly drained' or the localphase or the otherph data fields contain any of the phrases "drained" or "undrained" or "channeled" or "protected" or "ponded" or "flooded". If these criteria do not determine the PWSL for a component and hydricrating = 'UNRANKED', then the map unit will be classified as PWSL if the map unit name contains any of the phrases "drained" or "undrained" or "channeled" or "protected" or "ponded" or "flooded". For version 1 (pwsl1), waterbodies are identified as "999" when map unit names match a list of terms that identify water or intermittent water or map units have a sum of the comppct_r for "Water" that is 80% or greater. NULL values are presented where data are incomplete or not

10 58 Map Unit summed component percentage (representative value) (metadata) musumcpct mu_sum_comppc t_r The sum of the comppct_r (SSURGO component table) values for all listed components in the map unit.
